Forum: GratefulDead Subject: acoustic Phil

I'm watching the Dead Ahead DVD, you know Radio City Music Hall 10/80 (Dead Set and Reckoning), Phil drops this bomb playing To Lay Me Down and it's got me thinking. This set is "acoustic" as any head would label it, but is Phil really acoustic?

Hey Ned

Before I even knew what the Dead were about we watched that video and loved it but we were all so toasted it took a couple of years to realize that Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd were extremely cool but the Dead were cosmic.

That is a good question on the bass!

Phil played his standard electric bass for those acoustic sets during 1980. patkelly mentions that he did play some acoustic at some point, and I'm trying to remember if he was electric or not in the video of Jerry, Bob, and him doing She Belongs To Me. I haven't seen it in a long time. Maybe someone else can recall.

I think he's plugged in for those sets. But I've heard recordings where he's on acoustic bass
